Sex claim a ploy to sow discord in PKR, says Fahmi

KUALA LUMPUR: A statutory declaration containing startling sexual harassment allegations involving a top PKR politician and a 26-year-old has been dismissed as a ploy to “sow discord and confusion” in PKR, says its communications director Fahmi Fadzil.

“This is a standard script and the pre-congress timing indicates a political ploy by those intent to sow discord and confusion in PKR.

“Our political enemies will never succeed, ” he told The Star via a text message yesterday.

The statutory declaration made by the alleged victim, Muhammed Yusoff Rawther, claimed the top politician had attempted to coerce him into oral sex and anal sex in the leader’s office.

However, the sexual advances made by the top politician failed after Muhammed Yusoff allegedly pushed him away and shouted expletives at him.

Muhammed Yusoff, who claimed that he was terrified of the said politician, said he had to make the statutory declaration because he is worried for his safety.

He also held a press conference in Kuala Lumpur via Facebook live where he claimed that the top leader had committed crimes which were described as “unIslamic, vile, insidious and morally repugnant”.

Muhammed Yusoff is the grandson of the late SM Mohamed Idris, the former president of the Consumers Association of Penang (CAP).

At the press conference, Muhammed Yusoff criticised the authorities for failing to act on police reports filed against Perak PKR chief Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak, who is the political secretary of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

In a statement on Facebook, Muhammed Yusoff claimed that Farhash had physically assaulted him outside Anwar’s office in Jalan Gasing last May.
